Dummy a écrit:Thinking twice about this, i believe when you look at it and try to measure, all tanks should be full instead of empty and all basic equipment on board e.g. deck fitting, main anchor and its chain, etc.
Is your 1% angle longitudinal or lateral ?
Hello Kevin, Thank you for your replies. I have added the model and the year in my profile. But the number is still onboard - so I will do this in spring 2010 when I´ll be back in La Rochelle.
The leaning is along the waterline (higher in the stern than in the aft). The boat was tied to the jetty in the La Rochelle harbour when measuring (i. e. no wind, no currents). Also the anchor + chain was in the anchor box = if anchored the problem will get worse. I have measured with a leveller (2.5 m long) - with all tanks full and the boat normally equipped. The leaning is easy to recognize (even without the leveller) everywhere in the front cabin as well as in the salon and the aft cabin. I have asked the Alubat dealer in La Rochelle about this very strange issue, but no reply from them (or Alubat) yet. This is why I use this forum. It is also quite uncomfortable/impossible to sleep in the front cabin (with our feet in a position several cm (5-6?) higher than the head. The boat is not strangely loaded or equipped in any way. I am happy to hear though that I seem to be the only one with this problem. This should mean that Alubat has made a mistake in their production. I will now approach the dealer again. I am of course all ears for further comments/tips from members of this forum. Thank´s again. Rolf & Rosita.
